The Protestant Reformation

Mary McClellan

How it Started:

The Protestant Reformation's approximate time period was from 1577 to 1685. It was mostly about Religion and how it was changed. But daily life also had changed during that time. Religion changed because it broke up to a lot of different religions. They were all based on Roman Catholic. Also they are all Christians just different types because some were more Modern and others stayed with tradition.
